Administrator’s Report

S.

The previous grant was approximately $38,000, we have applied for 200,000.  The application process was very complex, so we do not know if we will be successful.  We have five vaccine clinics scheduled for this week.  S. Eifert stated we have two vacancies that need filled, the home health director and janitor position.
